    ABSTRACT: This communication addresses the problem of tuning a PID controller for step response. The tuning is based upon a First Order Plus Time Delay (FOPTD) model and aims to achieve a step response specification while taking into account robustness considerations. The industrial ISA-PID formulation is chosen. A tuning rule is derived first where the four parameters of the ISA-PID are determined by means of two new parameters: one parameter is related to the desired closed-loop time constant and the other one to the robustness level. On a second step, these two parameters are set to a fixed value in order to get a simple and automatic rule that directly gives the controller parameters in terms of the process model parameters. The proposed automatic tuning rule is compared with other known tunings.
